My son vacuumed up water. I am trying to open up the cannister & dry out, but am unable to get at all the screws. Is there a manual available that would show how to get at all the screw locations?

You will need a flat screwdriver and a little patience to get to the screws.

you will want to remove both the switch cover and the cord retract cover to get to the screws. once you have done that, you can get into the motor chamber area and dry that unit out.

Good luck,
Mark

How to access cord connection Eureka 3712 B cannister


This might be trial by ordeal---you may have to begin taking screws out until the unit separates where you can pull the case apart to get at it--note where screws go if different types etc.

This unit is so old a service manual might not be available for it but you can try to Google the model number with "service manual" to see.

My Ergospace Vacuum took some apple juice in and now it makes strange noice and even threw out some sparks. Is there anything I can do my self or is it over with this vacuum cleaner? I opened 6 screws, but...


Liquid plus electrical parts always ends up with the electrical parts losing. Juices, although they will dry, will leave behind a sticky residue. You'll need to replace at least the motor, but due to the other electrical components, probably be better off replacing the whole thing.

The hidden screws are beneath the control panel. There are two tabs beneath the panel cover. Using a thin bladed screw driver release these to pop of cover. You may need to use a flashlight to be able to see the tabs and make sure they get released. If the tabs break, the cover won't stay on. Under the cover are two screw that need to come out.
There are two more tabs in the bag well that need to be released. Remove the bag and at the top of the back of the tank you'll see two tabs. Do so with a screw driver. After this the top of the machine can be lifted off with some manipulating.
There are electrical motor spray cleaners you can use to try to get the residue off the motor, but it's doubtful you'll be able to remove it all.

Hoover core vacuum cleaner. My son has vacuumed water into machine. will this ruin it


Allow it to dry dry for sometime , clean all the filter after keeping it open, then run it open without any attachments , the bag or the filter till all traces of water/moisture goes off. I dont think there will much of problem unless it has gone into the motor and damaged, But take care if it is wet and allow it to dry before you touch it or connect to mains.

Water in Henry vacuum cleaner motor.


I would say it's essential to open Henry up, otherwise (assuming he has indeed got water inside him) you will wait for ever for him to dry. He can be opened very easily - just undo the four recessed screws on the underside of his hat, and the upper part will lift off. Pay attention to the switch (or switches, depending on the model) as that may be more vulnerable to water penetration than the motor. The motor compartment may have water in it, but the motor itself is probably fairly well protected. When you've got it opened and mopped up any visible water, it will help to give it a blow with a hair dryer.
If in doubt, though, get a professional to deal with it. It pays not to mess with electricity if you're unsure!

You **** up water the same way as dirt. It's designed this way, hence the name wet/dry. Just be sure not to get the water in the very top of the unit where the motor sucks the air for cooling ventilation, if water gets in there it can burn up the motor. A little hard way, personal experience, speaking there.

Vacuum Cleaner sucking dirt out of the cannister instead of into it.


You didn't give you model number, but check by the brush roll to see if the inlet there is clogged, hose still has a clog, filters are bad and need replacing. Does the brush roll turn, belts stretch after short usuage and will not drive the brush roll under load, may need to replace the belt.
